Graduate Admission

UW Engineering offers programs for engineers to learn new skills, boost their careers, or delve into academic research.


The UW Graduate School has minimum admission requirements for all students seeking graduate degrees. All prospective engineering graduate students submit their applications via the Graduate School.

In addition to the minimum UW requirements, each department has their own admissions requirements and application deadlines. Locate the engineering programs of interest to you, and learn about the requirements for each program. If you have questions about a particular program, contact the advisers for that program, who can be found in the Adviser Directory below.
